The Wilderness Center has started its search for a new Executive Director with the announcement of Gordon T. Maupin’s retirement in February 2014.
The Wilderness Center, Inc., (“TWC”), a regional 501(c)(3) nonprofit nature center and land conservancy located in northeastern Ohio, was founded in 1964. TWC, through its volunteer Board of Directors, is seeking the third Executive Director in its history. The Executive Director is the CEO of the organization, responsible for leading diverse operations and a staff of 14 full time and part time employees.
As a nature center, TWC provides hands-on, outdoor-based experiences for people of all ages to study and appreciate nature, serving thousands of people each year.
As a land conservancy, TWC owns 1,926 acres including several outstanding natural areas and protects an additional 1,332 acres through conservation easements. The Center’s revolving land fund assists other organizations with land conservation.
Social entrepreneurship is a key aspect. TWC’s “ecopreneurial” activities include wetland mitigation, consulting forestry, a nature preserve cemetery, and ecotourism. Through these activities, TWC earns income that allows it to support education and conservation, while providing a valuable service to the community.
